Our Pickle Ornament is one of our new ornaments, but actually an old tradition. Each ornament is a creation from birch wood and latex paint with brown hemp twine for hanging.
In the late 19th century people began placing pickle ornaments on their Christmas trees. This ornament was placed on the tree last and whoever found the pickle first received an extra present. In some traditions it was also an omen for the pickle finder to have good fortune in the upcoming year. There are many stories surrounding this interesting activity, but we believe anything that adds more fun to your holidays so be it!
This Pickle Ornament is the perfect gift for anyone who either loves pickles or wishes to add this tradition into their holidays. With love from our studio in Westbrook, Maine.
